How to use "Underframe" in context?
Underframe is a structural and economic term used in bridge construction and engineering. It is the lowest, closest to the ground, of all the structural members of a bridge. In simple terms, an underframe is the foundation of a bridge. It supports the deck, girders and other structural members. In additional, an underframe is responsible for the overall structural integrity of a bridge.
As with any other foundation of a structure, an underframe must be strong and rigid in order to support the weight of the building above it.
